Cancer Sucks balls Need votes for a baby girl.

Need a favor from the Porsche community. Today is the last day of voting for this and I'm trying to get the word out even more. The lady in 2nd complained to Remax saying our side was somehow cheating, got a spot on TV and has now caught up to us. Need the help.

My wifes best friend's granddaughter Sophie May was diagnosed with neuroblastoma a bit over a month ago. The tumor is right at her spine and is the size of a baseball. So far she's on her 2nd go around on chemo at Childrens Medical Center Dallas and things look better than they did 2 weeks ago. Her's is not genetic but one of those things that happen. I don't pretend to know or understand how this all happens but I've been asked by the family to spread the word.

This thread is not to ask for donations but for prayers and a vote.

Clicking here and voting for Sophie May, who is currently in the lead, will help the family with the huge medical bills if they win. The winner gets $10k from Remax.

Thanks in advance.

Vote in. What a cute little girl! Good luck to her and all the other children too. This is not a competition you want to be in in the first place.

Agreed. Odd bit about all of this. The father (Nathan) has a best friend who's daughter was diagnosed with this a few months before Sophie was. What are the chances of two kids, who's parents know each other so well, both getting neuroblastoma? Pretty low. Her Chemo has gone very well but it was found out hers was genitic while Sophies was not.

Really odd, but here are the two of them hanging out at the Dr's office.

Thanks everyone.

Today when I started to post these in other forums the votes for Sophie were still 250 above the 2nd place person. The votes increased by 400 or so over the course of the afternoon and evening and our lead varied from 300-350 until about an hour ago. Something happened where Sophie lost almost 500 votes and the 2nd place lady did not lose anything.

The grandmother got a phone call from Re/max stating that they were dismissing all votes that came from the same IP, or close to the same IP as they considered this cheating. Ok, no problem, but anyone knows that if you are in a office or hospital setting, all of those IPs are going to be close or the same.

Sophie got screwed tonight and I will not forgive Re/Max for it. This voting has been going on for a few weeks now so it's not a quick, one night thing.

Thanks for your help and boosting her votes up. I know I and the family appreciate the support.
